. they know that this isn't the beginning, but they do think that secretary kerry is coming back here at the end of the week to try to lay the groundwork with benjamin netanyahu and israel to start some talks. president obama is here to, as he said, listen. he said in the press conference yesterday that his main role in this visit is to just listen to the palestinians. it's a lesson he learned from his mom, he said, because the palestinian palestinians often feel that they are not heard. and so he really wants to see what kind of mood there is now and what it would take to really prod some sort of discussion to come into action. and, you know, they felt a little bit neglected and it's the president's time to remind him that even though he has been working very closely with the israelis, he has not forgotten that he wants to create some sort of open space for peace talks to come into fruition with secretary kerry now at the state department. >> very interesting you bring up secretary kerry. a second ago, jess, we saw president obama greeting secretary of state john kerry on the tarmac
would argue that's one of the many reasons that we're stuck. >> rose: okay. john kerry is the new secretary of state. cares about the middle east? interested. has been as chairman of the foreign relations committee. has many contacts in the region, many trips in the region, its unlikely he would appoint an envoy. he wants to do it himself i would assume. does that make a difference? >> it seems to be the case. it's the secretary of state, he has a certain gravitas. but ultimately you're going to have to have a president who is committed to this issue and i'm not convinced that president obama see this is other as a loser issue for him at this point. >> rose: so finally, aaron, when they come back you don't think we'll have a greater understanding between the two leaders? >> i think you will. and particularly i think on iran. i think netanyahu will continue to give the president the time and space he needs on the israeli/palestinian thing. i don't know, charlie. i really think that this is a tough one and with all due respect to secretary kerry, i wish him well but barack obama is
's going to take actions. >> well john kerry is going to follow up, the secretary of state, coming back here for din wer prime minister netanyahu. as a former two-term chief white house correspondent, david, you must have been identifying with our own chuck todd and how he tried to sneak in several questions. i wanted to play a little bit more of that wonderful exchange at the news conference last night. >> thank you, mr. president. mr. prime minister. mr. president, i want to follow up a little bit on the peace process. and mr. prime minister, i want to help out my colleague over here and then a question, another question i had for you. is why do you -- >> chuck, how many you got? you see how the young lady from channel 1, she had one question, she was very well behaved, chuck. >> i got one for you. >> these are muted questions. >> i get four questions. >> this is not a kosher question, but don't hog it. >> chuck, mine you're just incorrigible. >> so, so david, of course with the four questions, the centerpiece of the passover seder, there was a seder joke, a kosher joke, it was a bors
john kerry will stay a couple of days here and likely return very soon to start lay down the foundation. not for talks next week or next month but can they get these leaders to say and do the right thing? perhaps -- put a capital p on that perhaps, get them back to the negotiating table. there are so many difficult issues. >> we're about two minutes away from this press availability or speech we'll see from the two leaders. the reuters headline basically said after backslapping in israel, the president faces discontent on the second day of his trip. that pretty much sums it up. >> reporter: it does sum it up. it's hard because he needs to essentially try to help president abbas. the israeli government will tell you if they are going to make peace, president abbas is the one person they trust. he is aging. he has a fractured palestinian leadership. hamas is essentially sending the message to him we might not support you. be careful. plus the president of the yunitd states labels hamas a terrorist group. united states government before and after obama will likely claim hamas a terrorist g
. secretary of state john kerry. martin fletcher is live for must tel aviv with more. martin, good to see you, sir. who is kerry planning on meeting with? >> reporter: well, hi, craig. he is going to be seeing the israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyau this evening, having dinner together. i guess if president obama's visit here to try to turn things around was step one in that attempt, step two is a visit now of the secretary of state john kerry. he is going to be meeting with the prime minister. he met earlier in the day in jordan with the palestinian leader, mahmoud abbas. his talks are all going to be about how it put into action what president obama talked about, which was a renewed peace process between israeli and the palestinians. that's what his job is going to be. there is hope there will be serious negotiations in tweaks if the americans have their way. >> one of the key headlines from the trip is the diplomatic deal he broader between israel and turkey. how significant is this olive branch between the two countries? >> reporter: i think very significant, craig. very significant
kerry there talking. president obama is supposed to be awarded the medal of distinction at this dinner. when that happens, we will bring it to you live. again, live pictures there as the president awaits the medal of distinction. martin fletcher is standing by in jerusalem with the very latest for us. good to see you, sir. let's start with the president's speech. how was it received, both in the hall and how was it received by israelis watching it on television? >> reporter: well, i think, craig, it was received very well indeed. surprisingly well. he spoke so clearly and confidently and i think really hit all the points that israelis wanted to hear. one of the surprising things, the reaction of the 600 students from universities around israel that were in the audience, was that they applauded repeatedly. there were several standing ovations. most surprising to me anyway, the more often president obama called for a palestinian state existing in peace alongside israel, the more often he said that, the greater the applause was for the students. it was a real message not only from preside
that your visit along with the visit of secretary of state kerry will help us turn a page in our relations with the palestinians. let us sit down at the negotiating table, let us put aside all preconditions. let us work together to achieve the historic compromise that will end our conflict once and for all. let me conclude, mr. president, on a personal note, i know how valuable the time raine the energies of the american president, of yourself. this is the tenth time that we have met since you became president and since i became prime minister. you've chosen israel as your first venue in your visit, your foreign visit, in your second term. i want to thank you for the investment you have made in our relationship, and in strengthening the friendship and alliance between our two countries. it is deeply, deeply appreciated. you have come here on the eve of passover. i have always considered it as our most cherished holiday. it celebrates the jewish people's passage from slavery to freedom. through the ages, it is also inspired people, struggling for freedom, including the foundings, the foundi
success. just ask john kerry. what was the problem for the debates? the number of them or the participants? one more takeaway from the report, if you can't beat them, join them. the report says this. quote, well-funded conservative groups should seek to hire activists to attract democratic incumbents and cameras with -- after learning the hard way what video cameras did to todd aiken, george allen, even many murdoch. republicans want to return the favor, clearly. while republicans try to rehabilitate the party's image they have a more fundamental problem to solve. all the process fixes in the world can't deal with the basic question. who are they? as the gop tries to solve this mini identity crisis, feuds are breaking out all over as people try to move around and box each other out to decide who gets to play this game. those divisions were on full display at this weekend's cpac convention as republicans argued about whether the gop needs to expand i wants appeal or reject moderation and return to conservative principles. and debated what exactly those core principles are. former alaska gov
kerry here more often than his predecessor in the coming weeks and months trying to jump-start peace talks. israel will continue to ask the u.s. to exert heavy pressure on iran to prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon. and as we watched syria descend further into the chaos in their two-year civil war, i can imagine israel and the u.s. will keep talking a lot about how to contain the fallout from that war. so there is still quite a bit left on the table. >> abc's alex marquardt live from jerusalem. thank you. >> stay with abc news as we follow the president's every move in the mideast. live updates on "america this morning" and "good morning america" with the latest on this historic visit. >>> new details about a suspect in the murder of colorado's prison chief killed in texas in a shootout there. he has been tentatively identified as evan spencer ebel, an ex-con that belonged to a white supremacist gang. police in texas say when they tried to pull over ebel's car he suddenly accelerated and put a gun out his window. >> he came by me, running 100 miles an hour had his left arm ou
. is there anything that comes out of it stsubstantively. >> john kerry went back to meet with netanyahu. probably the best thing that can happen is we don't see any large summits convening public displace and there's hard work of diplomacy going on behind-the-scenes. i think john kerry is putting this at the top of his agenda for his at the entrepreneur as secretary of state. the president has given him the political push to do it and i think if we don't read or see big public displace then quiet diplomacy behind-the-scenes is what should be going on. >> mahmoud abbas basically saying, you know, so the idea is how can we restart negotiations. right now the netanyahu government says we should begin direct negotiations right now. let's talk. the p.a.'s position is there has to be a settlement freeze. the israeli government can floij secretly he'll stop settlement activities during the period of negotiations, referring to president netanyahu of israel he doesn't have to announce i want as a way much threading the needle. his political base will go crazy if he announces a settlement freeze. a settlem
home, secretary of state john kerry is remaining in the region. he has a pair of meetings today, one of them with the palestinian president mahmoud abbas. that's taking place in jordan. another one that will take place over dinner with the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu of israel. just another signal of just how important this issue is to the administration as they're showing once again their commitment to try to revive these peace talks. alex? >> all right, peter, thank you so much. >>> here at home the senate passed its first budget in four years, this during an all-night session. the nonbinding blueprint passed by a near party line vote. before its passage the senate spent several hours taking up dozens of amendments. >> average voteorama, 35 amendments. we've done 70, twice as many. doing this has been a herculean feat. >> i know everyone is exhausted and you may not feel it at the moment, but this is one of the senate's finest days in recent years and i commend everyone who has participated in this extraordinary debate. >> some of the amendments had nothing to do with the bu
we have seen a move towards in the last few months is suggestion of arming the rebels. john kerry saying just yesterday he wouldn't say in the way if the uk and france want to do that. bear in mind barack obama has had a ground swell of opinion around him pushing him towards arming rebels. he batted that down late last year. he's very reluctant to get involved. but many people around him now are saying because the escalating situation, they have to do something. >> nick paton walsh in beirut. thank you. the situation here in syria is sure to come up tomorrow. president obama makes his first trep to israel since moving into the white house. the president will be just over 300 miles from where these chemical weapons might have been used in syria when he arrives in tel aviv. you can see the proximity here. no main announcements are planned during this visit. mideast leaders obama will immediate with include netanyahu, mahmoud abbas and king abdullah of jordan. >>> so you thought the election season was over. huh-uh. it is primary day in south carolina, folks. i'm talking low country.
that at least for some time. secretary of state kerry will stay behind. everybody believes if you tried to force the parties back to the table tomorrow, it would be counterproductive. you have to do some preliminary work first. so let's check back in two weeks, maybe two months. if there's no peace process in a month or two, carol, you could say the president failed, at least in the short-term. but don't expect something by tomorrow or in the very near future. >> i don't think anyone does, john. you don't have to worry about that. thank you so much, john king, reporting live from june. >>> politics/entertainment. yes, politics can be very, very funny. we all got a fresh dose of sarah palin last week when she took center stage at the conservative political action conference. now we're getting another dose of tina fey. >> same-sex marriage, what is your view on that, please? >> well, the bible says it's gross. and i don't judge it. a lot of the amazing, wonderful people i met in the audience at "dancing with the stars" seem to go that way. but, no. >> no? no same-sex marriage? >> mm-mm. marriage i
kerry intends to spend significant time, effort and energy in trying to bring about a closing of the gap between the parties. we can not give up on the search for peace. too much is at stake. and if we're gonna succeed, part of what we're going to have to do is to get out of some of the formulas and habits that have blocked progress for so long. both sides are going to have to think anew. those of us in the united states are going to have to think anew. but i'm confident that we can arrive at our destination to advance the vision of two nations, two neighbors, at peace, israel and palestine. if given the chance, one thing that i'm very certain of is that the palestinians have the talent, the drive, and the courage to succeed in their own state. i think of the villages that hold peaceful protests because they understand the moral force of nonviolence. i think of the importance that palestinian families place on education. i think of the entrepreneurs determined to create something new, like the young palestinian woman i met at the entrepreneurship summit that i hosted who wants to build r
is my administration is committed in doing our part. i know that secretary of state john kerry intends to spend significant time, effort, and energy into try to bring about a closing of the gap between the parties. we cannot give up on the search for peace. oo much is at stake. and if we're going to success, part of what we're going to do is get out of some of the formulas and habits that have blocked progress for so long. both sides have to think anew. those of us in the united states have to think anew. but i'm confident that we can arrive in our destination to advance the vision of two nation, two neighbors at peace israel and palestine. if given the chance, one thing i'm certain of is the palestinians have the talent, drive, and the courage to succeeded in their own state. i think scrimmages to hold peaceful protests because they understand the force of nonviolence. i think of the importance that palestinian families place on education. i of the the entrepreneurs determined to create something new like the young palestinian woman i met at the summit that i hosted that wants to buil
at senator kerry's trip every day on that trip you saw him in a sense evolving in terms what we might be doing on syria. i suspect the administration is taking a hard look at, and a fresh look what can be done. and i suspect this trip is going to very much add to that. why don't i pause there. >> very good, thank you. david. >> thank you everyone. good to see everyone. good to be on the panel with my colleagues. i just came back yesterday. i must say i'm, well, dennis and i often have our own convergences. i might be a little less upbeat having returned from there. it could be a question how these things are put forward but i agree with him definitely on the public piece. i mean i can not see obama but succeed on the public part of the trip because it's really two trips in one at least to israel. the public part, it is israel you would be hard-pressed to find a ford minivan's worth of israelis that who are anti-american. they want to like an american president. whatever their differences have been with obama and they have been recorded in polls, for the most part every stop along the
of state john kerry will remain at least a little bit trying to maybe get this israeli/palestinian peace process off the ground. >> jump-start it. >> he has some political issues he has to deal with, major issues here. how much of a subject of importance will this be for the president? >> look, i think this has been very good for the president because there were lots of people in the american jewish community, particularly during this last election, who saw benjamin netanyahu cozying up to mitt romney, who were very skeptical about the president and israel. i think this trip as john king was saying earlier makes it very clear particularly when the president on the question of iran said all options are on the table, period, the president made it very clear as he said in his speech today, you are not alone. so i think domestically, politically, this trip is only good for the president. it makes him be seen as a leader. next to benjamin netanyahu these two men need each other in many ways right now and i think that is why you see this relationship blossoming. >> richard haas do you think an
